  • I'll say it. To me, that was the single best, most impressive play that I have ever seen (literally seen). Yes, even better than the NFCCG. Minnesota was down to their final play, despite killing it all year, Keenum still has doubters, makes one hell of a throw, Diggs' awareness to stay ion his feet and in bounds. It was simply amazing. If the Hawks had been down to their final play, it would be different. I was literally stunned. I'm happy for Minnesota. Keenum, Diggs, Thielen, and Latavius are all guys you should root for. That offense if a bunch of misfits.

    No shit. What was that guy doing?? Did he have money on the game or something? On the play, it looked like he just ducked out of making the play. It was just weird. All he had to do was wrap his arms around him, game over.


    That guy will be remembered like Tracy Porter was for getting trucked in the beastmode play.

    i dont know how you put a defensive choke play ahead of the Beast Quake, but ok. It was definitely a memorable and shocking play but it's a blunder. You can't label blunders as the most impressive. C'mon man. Wasn't even the most impressive play in this current NFL season.

    I strongly agree with this. There can't be an envied league of evil and a class of suffering fanbases if everyone has a ring.

    Agree that it sucks that the Pats could win again, but I'd take that over any of the other teams getting their first. Awful situation overall. Hope our Hawks can get back into contention next year and make the race for the SB great again.



    I couldn't disagree more, TBH I doubt i'll even watch the game if NE beats Jacksonville.

    Disagree. NO was lucky to be in the position they were to win. Gave Minnesota 3 min left with two timeouts. Game was totally in the Vikings hands. Was the last play misfortunate for NO, yes.

    However, that guy doesn't whiff on his hit, it would have most likely been a pass interference call. He was there way too early and took a bad angle. This is way overblown and reminds me of Tate against Green Bay.

    Come on man! The Beast Quake was a complete defensive choke all the way around! Yeah, is was insane and stunning, but that game still had time. Don't get me wrong, it was a hell of a play. Minnesota had 10 seconds left. From their own 39. Just think about that for a second. It's not like it was Rodgers, or Brady making that throw. Please, tell me what your play of the season is!

    This has nothing to do with taste. There has to be a lot of skill involved for a play to even have a chance at sniffing "greatest ever" territory. The defender just fell down and took out his own guy. The receiver had nobody touching him, he just made a catch and ran to the end zone. Not even a juke or defender had to be dodged.

    This isn't within a million miles of "greatest ever" and it's not even DEBATABLE.

    He may as well have been the only player on the field for all the skill it took for him to catch that ball and run to the end zone with it. Give me a break.

  • Safety totally mistimed his attack. He was there too fast. Hits the guy, pass interference. Should have totally backed off and made the tackle but that puts the Vikings in FG range. He was screwed either way.

  • There is some credit to be given as well, Keenum getting the ball there, Diggs catching the ball and then having the wits to not run straight out of bounds initially and compose himself enough to realize that nobody was behind him and to score.

  • In hindsight I think the guy thought Diggs would catch it and go out right where he dived.
    A fluke play and it hurts for the Saints fans/players as they had the game won.

    Huh?

    Why?

    Common sense duh. So they don't catch up to us. Do u understand how insufferable eagles fans will be if they win one? Their fans are already bad enough to deal with right now so imagine if their team had 1 SB in their resume....Right now we have bragging rights over other fans whose team has 0. And as much as I hate them I rather New England win than any of the remaining teams. Lol

    The only thing I can think of is that maybe he thought his timing was off and he didn't want to give up a pass interference that would guarantee a shot at a field goal.

    It was just an out route that was designed for the reciever to catch and go out of bounds. Williams completely whiffed on the tackle so it became a TD pass. It's not that impressive. It really isn't. Incredibly unlikely, yes, but that's it. And idk about the most impressive play this season....I'd have to dig through a lot of tape. When NO converted that 4th down that was just as impressive of a play. Almost the same exact play design.

  • Simple out route?

    Minnesota had 10 seconds left. No timeouts. 60 yards away from pay dirt and 30 yards for a comfortable fieldgoal. They had an unproven average arm Keenum at the helm who threw 1 INT already and 0 TDs. That play was a deep out with 2 receivers and 2 defenders in the same area. Not so simple when you reflect on it.

    It absolutely is all about taste. One writer at Yahoo ranks it as the 3rd best of all time, behind the music City miracle and the immaculate reception. Another writer at ESPN ranks it as the 15th best of all time, behind plays like Tebow to Thomas and Flacco to Jones. Everyone will view it differently. And the Beast Quake isn't even on either of those lists. In Minnesota's case, Yahoo considers the circumstances of the play (time left on the clock, distance to the EZ, Keenum's throw, Diggs adjustment, etc). And it's the only play in NFL playoff history to end on a walk off TD on the final play of the game.

    IMO anytime you include the insane pressure and importance of a moment, it elevates the play into the lofty comparisons we're putting on the play.

    For Diggs to highpoint the ball, come down, NOT go out of bounds out of fear, keep his balance with his off hand, stay in bounds and score? That's pretty damn amazing.

    That's how I'll remember the play, the positive. I'd rather not pile on the DB, dude's being crucified right now.

  • Amazing last play and Diggs really skied to grab that ball from above the rim. I think that threw off the defender who thought he would catch it closer to the sideline. Great play by Diggs to maintain his balance and stay in bounds.

    However I thought the Vikes benefited from some hometown calls from the refs. There were numerous questionable PIs and holding calls and a generous spots for first downs to extend drives, which enabled the Vikings build their big lead.

    Impressive moment, sure, given what was on the line. But it's not like he was shrugging off tackles against the defending SB champs during a run play, where you're 100% going to experience some contact and have to actually fight for the end zone. Broken down, it was a fairly routine catch and run for any WR since the DB completely whiffed (probably scared of drawing a defenseless receiver penalty or DPI). No one ever laid a finger on him and he didn't even have to juke.

    The Giants were already eliminated from playoff contention when that catch happened, so it may as well have been an exhibition game. But that hasn't stopped the media from shoving it down everyone's throats endlessly since it happened. Even in college games, announcers always make some Beckham reference whenever anyone makes a one-handed catch, like he invented the damn thing.

    I think that catch can be rivaled by Mike Evans' catch vs Atlanta, Doug's vs Minnesota, and DeAndre Hopkins' catch this year. Heck, even Paul Richardson's catch vs Detroit. Line the above poster mentioned, everyone acts like ODB invented the one handed catch. It's ridiculous.

    For Diggs to highpoint the ball, come down, NOT go out of bounds out of fear, keep his balance with his off hand, stay in bounds and score? That's pretty damn amazing.

    That's how I'll remember the play, the positive. I'd rather not pile on the DB, dude's being crucified right now.

    Oh gee, high-pointing a catch and taking it to the end zone. That certainly doesn't happen EVERY WEEK in the NFL during the regular season.

    Yeah...alright, guys.

  • Probably important to put it into context... 10 seconds left, 61 yards away, playoffs, blowing a 17 point lead.. and all the pressure of being 13-3 and trying to be the first team to play a home Super Bowl.

    That was one hell of a moment

    It's practically their entire offense without Cook.I re-watched our Week 1 game against them earlier in the week and within the first 5 minutes noticed they run almost nothing but pick plays. I was calling out every time they would happen like clockwork yesterday.

    Uncle Si wrote:Shameless diving and play acting by Vikings. Refs awful so far.

    Just as poor is the saints offense


    Thought it was just us seeing the way that game was called in the first half. They flagged the piss out of us while Rhodes held Michael Thomas at every possible opportunity. But yeah, our offense the first 30 minutes of the game was abysmal.

    Thankfully they started calling it evenly after half. I'm glad Thomas ate his lunch and took his milk money in the 2nd half to the point Rhodes nearly had a nervous breakdown on the sideline.

    Sucked to miss on that because we hit that same play on the Rams last year for a TD. Kamara is just way faster than Hightower and Snead threw it a bit too far.

    chris98251 wrote:Also Kudos to the Saints players that came back out, some of them were offensive guys just ending the game.


    One of those was our punter who broke his rib having to make a tackle (on I think our first drive) and still had to punt 17 or so times in the first half and held on field goals. Tough SOB.

    hawk45 wrote:Williams makes a routine tackle and the Saints advance, what a boner. If I'm a Saints fan I want him gone, I don't care what he's done or if he's good normally. Just a devastating mental mistake to cost you the season.


    He isn't going anywhere. Including yesterday, he had 5 picks on the season, as a rookie. Your own Earl Thomas pulled off the same number his rookie season. Would you have wanted to cut him had he missed a tackle against Chicago in the 2011 Divisional playoff game?

    NJlargent wrote:43 and whoever was 22 on beast quake should go out for a drink and figure out who is more embarrassed


    It'd be Marcus Williams, purely for the fact that he's a rookie and it was only his second play-off game. Porter had a game saving and game sealing interception off of Favre and then Manning in back-to-back games during our championship run the year before, the latter of which being a 74-yard TD to seal our Super Bowl. He's literally a hometown hero being he's from Port Allen, LA.

    It's sucked, but the 2012 playoff loss to San Francisco hurt more than all of those and our 2014 playoff loss to you guys combined.

    Msfann wrote:That guy will be remembered like Tracy Porter was for getting trucked in the beastmode play.


    For Minnesota fans? Yeah, but fans of other teams won't remember him. Just like no one remembers Tracy Porter outside of Colts fans, you guys and us in New Orleans.

  • Williams is a rookie. He had a phenomenal rookie season, but he is still a rookie.

    You know what the only thing he heard as he is running to make the stop? His coaches voice from the last timeout before the play. “Whatever you do, don’t give up a PI. You hear me? Don’t give up a PI in field goal range.”

    That kid didn’t whiff on the hit, he pulled off to avoid the PI. His mistake was getting to the play too fast, and not being able to pull up. Sherman/ Thomas don’t make that mistake, but they have more experience.

    I wouldn’t write the kid off yet, he had a great year, and pulling off the attack is just a little inexperience.

    He’s no Brian Bostick. Now that was a true screw up.

Minnesota was down to their final play, despite killing it all year, Keenum still has doubters, makes one hell of a throw, Diggs' awareness to stay ion his feet and in bounds. It was simply amazing. If the Hawks had been down to their final play, it would be different. I was literally stunned. I'm happy for Minnesota. Keenum, Diggs, Thielen, and Latavius are all guys you should root for. That offense if a bunch of misfits.


    It was the single biggest blunder ever.


    You guys have to stop using the word 'ever.' There are a bunch of blunders that are just as bad off the top of my head. Romo fumble for one, Leon Lett as well.

    Yeah, watching the play again, it does become clear that avoiding the PI was his prime directive and that once he accelerated towards the ball to make a play he was out of options. He could either interfere or do what he did and dive around the guy. Being less aggressive to the ball would have been the right play, but that's a very fine line to walk as we found out Russell's first year when the Falcons bounced us out of the playoffs as we let Matt Ryan complete bombs on us to get in field goal range.

  • I'm not sure that it's even the worst play of the Vikings-Saints playoff matchups. That honor goes to Bret Farve throwing it to Tracy Porter in the 2009 NFCCG.

    Worst play of all time either has to be Lett touching the ball after the blocked field goal, the Colts running a fake punt against the Pats, Desean Jackson dropping the ball before crossing the line, or my personal vote, Jim Marshall recovers a fumble and runs to the wrong end zone.



    When it comes to true, boneheaded screwups, that happened at critical moments in the playoffs however, I really can't think of any worse play than Bostick trying to recover our onside kick.

  • IronSaint made reference to the punter.

    Great story: some Vikes fans took some appreciation in him coming out for the last play, looked him up, saw a charity he has a s spread the word.

    His charity has something like 100k (25k in 4 hours since his radio interview) in donations from Vikings fans since the game. Punter has since said he will move all that donated money to a MN children’s charity.

    Cool story.

    Sure that’s how is the Saints and Vikings feel about it.

    So many here want to disparage the greatness of this play. Unfortunate..
